Question about Watts Water Heaters

Open Question

I have a hotspot HOTSPRING spa pool.circa 2000 not heating

I have a hotspot HOTSPRING spa pool.circa 2000 .Since replacing the pump I dont have heating .The temp can be locked in on the digital dial but disappears after 60sec and no heating . I had to unclip the blue green brown leads to the heater links in the terminal box,but may have them on the wrong terminals although I did note where they went but not on what choice of two presented- bit of a bugger as I dont want to go experimenting and blow things up .
Is it OK to swap the terminals around as long as I stay in the area I pulled them off ? I changed the black lead onto the terminal next to it and the digital readout stopped flashing.
I dont have the electrical diagram to go by
regards Gerald

What would cause my pool heater to get so hot that it melted the black plastic on the outside of the unit.


check the inside for foreign objects like mice, nests, snakes etc. Check the exhaust is clear, and also the air intake. Does it have an air filter?

The length of a pool is 10 ft, the width is 10 ft, the volume is 2,700 cubic ft. we are trying to find out the height.


V = L x W X H
2700 = 10 x 10 x X
2700 = 100 x X
x = 2700/100
x = 27

You should be able to do that in your head.

Will well water cause a problem on the heat pump water heater


I would say yes.
Because element may not be easy to replace, or easy to reset unit after replacement
I would also suggest not buying heat pump... must be in at least 10'x10' room with 7" space around entire heater

Pool pump breaker tripping


1) Not likely the timer is problem, unless there was fire or overheating in timer box. Use nose and eyes to inspect for signs of high heat.

2) Eliminate timer as suspect:
Move wires on timer to test if timer relays have gone bad.
Move terminal 4 to terminal 3
Move terminal 2 to terminal 1

3) Check watt rating of Hayward pump, and voltage.
1Hp motor at 240Volt draws 8 amp, and can draw 6 to 8 times that amount when starting. Up to 100 feet, should be at least 12 gauge wire and double-pole 20 amp breaker. Over 100 feet, 10 gauge wire and 30 amp double-pole breaker is best.

4) Intermatic T104 240V timer is rated 40 amps
Can safely handle 1 Hp motor without nearing heat-rating capacity of timer

5) Make sure the motor is wired correctly for 240Volts.
If motor is wired for 120, and 240 is applied, then tripped breaker can result.

I have a Rheem 101 electric series circa 1997 model 101160. Water is hot in the mornings and is cold in the afternoons. This occurs even if we dont use hot water in the mornings. Have just replaced...


Maybe more than 1 problem: Suspects are: crossover, sediment or assorted gunk is built up in bottom of tank, or a loose wire or bad circuit breaker, or loose connection somewhere at water heater.
There is no off-peak setting unless you wire up the water heater differently or install a timer.

1) When water is cold, open TP valve at hot water heater to see if tank has hot water.
If tank has hot water, but it does not arrive at faucet, then suspect is crossover:

2) To test if circuit breaker is problem, move wires to different circuit breaker with same amp rating:

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-circuit-breaker.html

3) Turn off power, open connection at top of heater and check that wire nuts are tight
Check all wire connections for signs of high heat and burning.

4) If bottom is filled with gunk, the lower part of heater can be slow to heat and will take so long that top part of heater will cool. Clean sediment out of tank.

Raypak gas pool heater with error code HL2


Do you have power to the heater?If you do then I would look for a hi limit switch to reset.It might be the pump you have to reset.
